HC Deb 09 November 1937 vol 328 c1563
15. Mr. Tinker

asked the Secretary for Mines whether he is aware that the underground workings extend, in many instances, to over a mile; and whether his Department has examined this question with a view to making regulations that the workmen shall be conveyed to their work when the coal face reaches a certain distance?

Captain Wallace

My hon. and gallant Friend is aware of the fact mentioned. The question has been examined, and evidence on it has been tendered to the Royal Commission on Safety now sitting.
